Default last of the scraps

welp, finally got around to finishing up the cutting boards/lazy susan made from scraps I started a while back. In the end, I had 22 cutting boards, 6 lazy susans, a couple bread boards and a couple cheese boards and one serving tray. Ohh and about 2 dozen coasters. Both of the projects below were actually what was left from two failed cutting board projects. One was a 3d cutting board and the other was just a fancy pattern cutting board. Neither turned out due to my poor setup for the cuts. I probably could have salvaged both projects but I'm just not all that much into salvaging projects like these. I am glad though, that I did save the pieces...

The cutting board serving tray/cutting board is all endgrain. I really like how it turned out and it has given me ideas for several others down the road. Both were finished with food grade, 3-5 coats, scuffed between coats. Finish will be a nice bee's wax topcoat...

Double Yowzer - - At least you can use the serving tray ---- the cutting boards no. Too pretty!

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Fantastic ,Bill, I really like your designs, you really out did yourself on that last one, the end grain tray. That is a lot of work figuring out those designs and making up boards to be cut so that they form the finished design. Great job.

What about that table in the second picture? Pretty fancy shop table.

Thank ya Herb....

the serving tray is a great lesson on "Planning out" your projects. Something I dont' always do and didn't do on this one. It was kind of a design on the fly project. I havn't put it out there for sale yet, but if there is enough interest, a couple of templates will be in order. I spent hours hand sanding that thing. I didn't take a pic of the bottom. I put in 3, 1/4" x 1" runners. 2 walnut and 1 maple. The runner protrude from the bottom by a little less than 1/8". Just a little protection against the possibility of it separating width wise along one of the sections. The random pattern kinda grows on ya.

I'll get a couple pics of the "table" and tell you whats up with that one
